Confident: Benjamin Mendy

New Manchester City signing Benjamin Mendy is confident he is the right man to join the most expensively-assembled defence in history.

The Monaco left-back's arrival in a reported £49.4m deal takes Pep Guardiola's summer spending past £200m.

"I am the right person for the group. I am easily adaptable," Mendy said. "I can bring a lot of creativity in the game, I can offer different solutions, I like to provide assists for strikers.

"I am very proud of joining Manchester City, this is what I wanted. Since I was a kid it was a dream to play in the Premier League and I will do everything I can to enjoy every minute of it."

Mendy has signed a five-year contract and will join up with his new team-mates in the US, where City are preparing for their second pre-season tour game against Real Madrid in Los Angeles.
